Sheriff: Marijuana Legalization Will Change The Face Of Michigan

Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

Michigan Voters Legalize Marijuana

In Utah and Missouri, voters on Tuesday decided that patients should have access to medical marijuana. The number of states that have legalized recreational marijuana rose from nine to 10, and the number allowing medical use rose from 31 to 33.

Utah's governor said he would call lawmakers into a special session after the midterm election to pass the deal into law, even if Tuesday's initiative failed.

A similar measure was defeated in North Dakota, meaning there are now 10 states - including Colorado, which was the first - that allow recreational use of pot.

MI now joins nine other states that have legalized marijuana for all uses: Washington, Colorado, California, Oregon, Alaska, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada and Vermont.

MI has become the first state in the Midwest to approve recreational use of marijuana.

Current state law, according to a sheet explaining the proposition from the Utah Lieutenant Governor's office, requires that by January 1, 2019, Utah ensures "that cannabis is grown in the state and can be processed into medicinal form" and also that the state "establish a state facility to sell the cannabis that has been processed into a medicinal form".

"Now that more than 30 states have enacted comprehensive medical marijuana laws, it is time for Congress to step up and address the issue at the federal level". OR voters rejected a similar measure.

The proposal allows people 21 and older to possess, use, and buy cannabis for recreational use.

In all, 155 statewide initiatives were on ballots across the country.

Proposal 1 allows marijuana to be regulated like alcohol.

Proposition No. 2 in Utah passed with about 53 percent of voters for the measure and about 47 percent against it. The most straightforward approach I've seen is the Respect State Marijuana Laws Act, a one-sentence bill sponsored by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) that makes the federal marijuana ban inapplicable to anyone acting in compliance with state law. But Amendment 2 passed with a whopping 66-34, having the most support of the three from advocacy groups, due in part to the measure's allowance for doctors to recommend cannabis for any condition they believe will benefit the patient. On a more municipal level, voters in various cities across OH weighed questions related to decriminalization and minimizing punishments so that possession is treated like a traffic ticket instead of a misdemeanor.
